4 Days til Christmas Song ~ Louis Prima Recording of “What Will Santa Claus Say”

Louis Prima, “The King of Swing,” was a New Orleans born son of Sicilian immigrants. Primo’s career spanned five decades and he was a trumpeter, singer, songwriter, and actor. Prima was also the voice of the orangutan in Disney’s the Jungle Book, performing the song “I Wanna be Like You.”

I am curious to know if any GMG readers ever saw Louis Prima play during his long career.

  • louis armstrong, zat you santa claus
    Not knowledgeable on Prima so thanks for sharing him, love the music, he and Armstrong would have been the music of parents generation I think.


  • Not in person but watched him on the BW- TV – I have his music at the house (The wildest 1956) and most of the hits he sung with Keely Smith she started with him when she was 17… Thanks 🙂


  • I never saw him in person but hear him on Jazz24 (an internet radio station).
